I have for a 540 World Traveller Edition here in Canada (model is somewhat equivalent to the European XXL IQ Routes - Europe).

What would you like to know?

@MRDJ as I recall you have a 930 so you cannot use the new RDS receiver thats built in to the power lead as your hardware won't support it, well it might be possible by hacking some files from a Navcore intended for a different device but a stock 930 cannot use it - see Here - Mike

Hello,

I have one of these charger / RDS units and have just come back from driving around France, Germany, and Austria. I found it picks up the signal very quickly where ever I have turned it on including in the UK (however I have only ventured as far north as Birmingham whilst using this unit). The accuracy of the data in France seems to be very good compared to the UK, and in some ways is almost too over cautious on delays. I did get caught in some traffic in Germany that did not show up, and in Austria the delay caused by the mountain sheep crossing the road also was not on there, but thatís hardly surprising.

Its a nice tidy unit that works well with my XL IQ as I hated the messy wires of the older usb unit.

Hopefully of some help?
Tim
